The drawback to this show is that they seem to me to be relying far too much on the gimmick that is the stage. Once the initial "ooh"s and "aah"s are out of the way, the show does not have any of the humor, warmth, charm, or beauty of "Mystere". With only one or two exceptions, the performances themselves do not compare with those of "Mystere". Particularly tiresome are the amazingly unfunny "clowns" that appear between performers, apparently to bore us to sleep for an agonizingly long time while the real performers are changing costumes. I actually dozed off a few times, and caught others around me doing the same. We read reviews that said "O" was not as goos as "Mystere", but we figured that with the amazing stage set, the location in the swanky Bellagio, and the astronomical ticket price, it had to be at least as good if not better that it's sister show. Please, believe me when I tell you that "Mystere" deserves to be the standard-bearer for Cirque du Soliel in Las Vegas, while "O" is a big ZERO.
NOT RECOMMENDED unless you have time and money to burn and have trouble sleeping. But if you must, tickets are $110 and $90 online at link or 888-488-7111, shows are at 7:30 and 10:30 with no shows on Wednesday or Thursday.

When we returned to the Bellagio, there was a long line of people waiting for tickets and computers were still down. Nevertheless, with our confirmation number in hand, we purchased our tickets. I thought that the show should be awesome at that price and after all that difficulty. Our spirits were lifted somewhat by an extremely nice group of security people who permitted us to go in and sit down. We were very early, but enjoyed sitting in the theater, which is more impressive than many in Vegas. It was interesting to me that they sell popcorn. When the show finally was about to begin, there were some strange-looking people in costume circulating around the theater. Two mimes came out. We thought they were rather rude and in the spotlight too long. We wanted the "real" show to begin.
When the curtain rose, there was activity everywhere and the opening was dynamic. A stage of water that can be controlled is unique. (O is eau, the French word for water.) The acrobatics were amazing. The athletes do precision dives, jumps, tosses, etc. It is Cirque du Soleil, after all. However, my husband began to doze when the two mimes came out again. He has seen Mystere and thinks it's better. We had expected so much from O that it just wasn't as electric as we had hoped. Pardon the pun. Maybe you'll expect less and enjoy it more.

We've seen four Cirque du Soleil shows in various parts of the country. This one is by far the most unique.
Ticket prices may be a bit high but so is everything in Las Vegas.

The theatre is designed in the style of a European opera house. The name of the show "O" is a homonym for the French word, "eau," which means, "Water." The central element of the set is a large pool built into the stage. The pool contains more than 1 million gallons of water. Within the pool there are several stages.
The performers are inspired artists that have the ability to create magic with their movements. The athleticism of the production keeps the audience filled with wonder.
One unfortunate aspect about "O" is the cost. The show is expensive. In my opinion, "Mystere at TI" is a better show for the money you pay. See my review of Mystere.
“O” plays at the O Theatre inside the Bellagio Hotel & Casino.
“O” performances are twice nightly, at 7:30pm and 10:30pm, Wednesday through Sunday. There are no performances on Monday or Tuesday.
Tickets for “O” are available for $150, $125, and $99.
